Muhammad Ali


The 72-year-old was admitted to an undisclosed hospital on Saturday. The boxer is said to be doing fine and won’t be in the hospital long. Ali’s representatives released a statement asking for privacy on behalf of the family.

“Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, is being treated by his team of doctors and is in stable condition,” his spokesman Bob Gunnell said. “At this time, the Muhammad Ali family respectfully requests privacy.”

The boxer’s daughter, Laila Ali was asked about her father’s health in October. Laiaa refuted claims of her father’s health declining.

“He’s good,” she said. “Rumors about [his health] every year come out. He’s sick, but he’s alive.”

Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1984 and retired from boxing in 1981.
